Egmar Gonçalves (born 15 August 1970 in Vila Velha, Brazil) is a Singaporean former professional soccer player. He had changed his nationality to Singaporean in 2002, under the Foreign Sports Talent Scheme, in order to play for the Singapore national football team.
In his time with Home United FC, Gonçalves scored a total of 239 S.League goals in 11 S.League seasons and was the first recipient of the 100 S.League goals award in 2001, although he had managed 107 by the end of that season. He reached the 100 goals mark in a hat-trick against SAFFC in a 4-0 win. It was due to S.League deciding not to include the inaugural Singapore Cup goals as it was known as League Cup but backtracked on it later. He was also awarded the 200 S.League goals award in 2004 which he reached the mark, in a hat-trick again, against Sinchi in a 5-1 win.
In January 2007, Gonçalves returned to Brazil in after failing to agree a new contract with Home United.
Gonçalves failed to make any impact for Singapore at international level and was one of the unsuccessful players in the foreign talent scheme endorsed by the Football Association of Singapore, although he is well remembered for scoring in the 4-2 away defeat against Iraq in the 2007 Asian Cup qualifying campaign.
Gonçalves lives in Vila Velha city, Brazil, with his wife and children.
